Ewest, it will be interesting to see if Bob has a comment on the bag without his picture. It was probably a limited run before they had formalized any arrangement he had with Purina.

Still waiting for mine. So much for the 1 week timing of my local store.

I love the new bags. I think they're a lot easier to open.

If anyone gets a bag without Bob on the back, could you please take a picture of the front and back of the bag and send it to me?

Bob was on mine. I like the bags, easy to open, seemed durable enough to transfer to buckets.

Pictures sent in PM

I just picked up this bag last Friday, Coop said it came out of St Jo, MO as the Purina plant in Lincoln had none. Didn't bother looking at the date when I picked it up because I had been out almost a week and just happy to get it.

Then tonight looked at the date stamped on the bag because there was no tag; dated 6-12

Not happy!!!

We had temps drop from 87 last Friday to 55 on Saturday and the fish have hardly ate since. Yet this week has been back in the low 80's but still not eating, even the BG. I thought it was the temp change but could it be the old food?

If the food is not moldy then its the weather. I bet its temp drop. Fish take a while after temp changes to adjust. What is your water temp ?

LL send me a PM with the pic.

Got 5 bags with my rainbow trout last night. One already had the seam opening up on one bag. Got the trout from Herman Brothers and they where a little bigger than expected. Average size was over a pound. Put in 40 pounds. They look really healthy.

Thanks Ewest,

The food is not moldy and I'll check the water temp when I go out to feed this morning.

Water temp @ 7:45 AM was 60 at the surface, 62 at 4' (off the dock) and air temp was 56 with evening lows around 53.

Feeding was back to normal this morning, engulfing AM LMB and AM 600 grin

Thanks again!

They will be eating for about 5 more degrees of water temp +- but feeding will decrease with the temps.
